With a kid-sized motorcycle dealership and engineering lab, Hands-On Harley-Davidsonis a one-of-a-kind visitor experience that lets kids—and adults—Dream It! Build It!...and Ride It!  The exhibit focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Standards-based learning opportunities for pre-school and school-age children, and hands-on fun for everyone, make it a great family experience.

Dream It!

Machines in Motion - As a design engineer, learn how acceleration, speed, friction, and gravity affect a motorcycle in motion. Conduct your own experiments to see what happens when you throttle-on, lean into a curve, or descend a mountain road.

Go Global - Choose a motorcycle tour using an interactive world map to learn about your bike’s mechanical systems, solve math challenges, and see fantastic destinations.

Gear Up - Step into a pretend dealership and select an interactive video to learn about the riding gear that will keep you safe, warm…and dry!

 

Build It!

Motorcycle Mechanics - Learn about engine parts and how they work together to create a smooth and safe ride. View real motorcycle mechanics hard at work in a dealership service department.

Build-It Bay - Build your dream kid-sized motorcycle inspired by a real Harley-Davidson® Road King,® using interchangeable custom motor parts and accessories, including seats, mirrors, tail pipes, and engine components.

Custom Shop - Style your ride with magnetic flames, Harley-Davidson® logos, saddle bags, and a personalized license plate!

 

Ride It!


Safety First - Role - play as a motorcycle-riding community service officer, complete with a “see yourself” monitor, and videos that help you learn about traffic safety, hand signals, and preparing for a trip. Helmets, pretend gear, service officer decals for your bike (and flashing lights!) are included.

Let's Ride - A first-person riding experience, including a throttle to control the speed of your bike, working turn signals, costumes, audio effects – and the wind in your face – complete the ultimate ride experience!

Off-Road Recreation - A multilevel play space, created with real Harley-Davidson® motorcycle parts, accessories and sounds, complements the pretend dealership.
